Thanks for reaching out. Since standards development
meetings are open and intended for development and publication
of IEEE standards, the restrictions do not apply to those open
standards develoment meetings. The restrictions apply in
closed meetings where there are technical discussions. For
IEEE Standards, that would be during governance, planning, or
leadership meetings where an executive session is in play.

Thank you both
for attending the 802 EC teleconference today. I remain
unclear reading the IEEE-SA and IEEE documents regarding
the impact BIS entity list and the proper conduct of
Standards Development Meetings.
Are we allowed
to have technical discussions in standards development
meetings with participants who may be affiliated with or
employed by one of the entities identified?
via the email reflectors (email lists) covered by the
purpose of standards development meetings is to have
technical discussions. The IEEE guidance indicates that
we may continue to include persons affiliated with or
employed by one of the identified entities, while the
IEEE-SA guidance specifically prohibits "technical
discussions" with such people. Yvette stated that such
prohibition is intended only to apply to "Executive
Sessions", but this is not clear to me from the actual
text. As a Task Group chair and participant, I need to
ensure the proper policy is being followed.
Thanks and best
Benjamin A. Rolfe
